Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2019 Winnebago View 24D

My wife and I recently purchased a 2019 Winnebago View 24D which is on a Mercedes Sprinter Chassis. We are planning a trip from Seattle to Spokane via I-90 and Snoqualmie Pass occasionally goes chains required this time of year. Does anyone have a recommendation for tire chains for this model motorhome?

My concern is that there is roughly a 3" clearance between the outer dual on the passenger side and a clamp for a hanger for the exhaust

This reply to my earlier post was submitted to attach a photo showing the rear passenger dual and exhaust pipe.

Last year I got on Amazon Security Chain super z. Never used them. Carry them to be legal. If chains are required pick another time to go. I would not drive my View in snow. I stay on the west side in Winter. My worry is wind, ice and snow. I have had a number of tough drives on I 90 due to wind. Add in bad road and it could be an issue. Pick your weather, my View has all of the upgrades, Summo, Fox rear shocks, Helwig sway bar. Driving back from Prosser a couple of months ago, the wind was very tough, I have had issues at Vantage with wind.

Check the Sprinter manual that came with the MH. It should give you info on what if any chains that you can use. Personally I would stay home if I had to choose. Your other option is to install actual M/S or winter tires on the MH (snowflake symbol on sidewall) then no chains required( I believe). Also make sure if you install chains to put them on the outer rear and the front tires. Remember just because you put then on the rear and you can move forward you will not have any control unless you put them on the steering axle also.

I gave two sets of Tire Sox, one for the CR-V and one for the MH. Don't really plan on using them but need them to be legal.

Konig chains are excellent for situations with tight clearance issues. They are self adjusting, offer great traction and are easy to install and remove. Not inexpensive at $200, but you know what they say.


Yes, we never want to use them, if you do need to, these are the ones you want.

Save your motorhome and get yourself a set of Tire Sox. The last thing you want to do is rip up your undercarriage.

Mud & Snow (M/S) tires are typically only compliant with the Chains Required requirement if you have 4-wheel drive.

A few notes on the Tire Sock products.



They may or may not comply with a state requirement to carry or use chains. Check with the states where you plan to travel.


They are intended for use on snow or ice packed surfaces. Frequently when chain installation is required, road conditions will vary from snow packed to slushy to clear before reaching a chain removal area. This would present conditions where Socks are not recommended. Their longevity may be questionable under such conditions.


Installation and removal can be strenuous compared to chains. Of course if they've shredded to bits along the way, removal may not be necessary.

Auto Socks comply with all states chain requirements according to their site.

Have traveled to the NW from SoCal for many years. Carry tire chains bought from NAPA to be legal. Have no plan to use them. If caught by weather just hole up till ok to travel again.

Go to Les Shuaab and ask them witch chains fit. Purchase a pair, now never put them on and get your money back after winter. Within a day or so you can go back and forth to eastern Wa without chains on but must carry them. Just watch weather and plan well.

I carry a set of Les Schwab cable chains in my RV. Have never taken them out of the bag except once to try them on to make sure they fit. I don't intend to take them out of the bag again, nope, not ever, but I carry them as required by Oregon and probably other states.
